I’ve have been using the web to access emails from Hotmail.com. I usually have it set up through my Outlook but now I am remote most of the time.
One thing that was getting on my nerves, a person who emails me, somehow has a Flickr account attached to their email domain(Is my guess). So every time I read their email, I see their work Flickr account photos in the email. I don’t want to see those photos every time I open an email from them. I needed to put an end to this because it is the same pictures every time and have nothing to do with the email.
Here is how to turn off the ‘Active View’ feature in Hotmail;
1. Sign in to your Windows Live Hotmail account.
2. Go to Options – More Options. The Options menu is located to the right.
3. Reading email -> Active View settings.
4. Do you want to see previews? -> Hide previews.
5. Do you want to get interactive updates from web sites you have accounts with?’ -> No.
Now you will no longer see the Flickr photos while read emails.
While I was going through the MVC 3 tutorial Accessing your Model’s Data from a Controller. I got the following error when I tried to open the Movies.sdf file.
“The Operation could not be completed. Unspecified Error.”
The first issue was I did not have Web Platform Installer set up within Visual Studio 2010 SP1.
After that was set, I needed to install Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Tools for SQL Server Compact 4.
SQL Server Compact 4.0 tooling is not installed along with Visual Studio 2010 SP1 by default.
There are two approaches to adding an email address to your safe senders list in Outlook 2010. We will start with the easy way first.
The second method is a bit more cumbersome but does the trick. Go to Tools-> Options -> Junk Mail
You could also check the ‘Automatically add people I email to the Safe Senders List’ to save your self the hassle of doing these steps. But beware, you don’t want that Safe Senders List to get too big.
